Episode 65 - Men and Women in Tights

Feb 20, 2012

Banes and Ozoneocean round off the topic of superheroes, beating that wonderhorse to death well and truly. There's a lot of reminiscing here about ancient superhero pop-culture and along the way we discuss silver age and golden age comics, supervillains, second stringer superheros and why the remain that way, the gender and culture appeal of some characters, evolution of superheroes towards realism and grit, then webcomic superheroes, especially those on DD, and then finish up with why we like superheroes. Sidekick Captain-Ozone continues to echo disturbingly from the void while the real hero, Ultra-Banes, continues to bring the humour. We decide that it all comes back to Superman and Batman, who are the ultimate prototypes for the two main types of superheros: super, good, and perfect Vs normal, flawed, and human.

Retro cast! Re-casted! :)

Banes at 7:54AM, Feb. 22, 2012

ayes - always the endless spate of foul language!

Banes at 7:53AM, Feb. 22, 2012

haha...well we had an emergency session for the later posters, since we'd recorded the whole thing in one marathon session. Thanks! The contributions were great...and thanks, gullas! You had a wacky line reading that was really funny! Oooooh, Bane. I'm in for it when that new Batman movie comes out. My name isn't even a reference to him. :-D

Oz... you don't want Banes to be the Robin to your Batman.... Bane broke the bat's back!... okay that was a bad joke :P but awesome quackcast. I thought for sure I had written too late :P

Banes at 4:34PM, Feb. 21, 2012

...I'm pretty sure you learned that George Reeves died mysteriously, heroes are descended from old Gods, and you love superheroes because on a primal level, they represent something you deeply desire out of life!

Banes at 4:15PM, Feb. 21, 2012

Wait...we were supposed to learn something?

Kroatz at 12:57PM, Feb. 21, 2012

So... What did we learn from this again? :P

It's my Lair. I do evil things there, like pop evil popcorn over evil lava. And lemme tell you, it's a hoot! God I love popcorn...

the echoes sound like an audio problem but ozone actually lives in a hollow mountain. It's a fact, jack. Btdub, Daredevil's handicap is actually that he's catholic.
